Deweese-Boyd, Ian T. E. – Education and Culture, 2015
After offering an overview of the Utopian's educational vision, along with their understanding of the obstacles keeping schools from realizing this vision, this paper examines the objection that the Utopians (and John Dewey) naïvely reject the reality of economic motivation in learning. A consideration of Dewey's own understanding of curriculum,…

Oliverio, Stefano – Education and Culture, 2015
In this paper, Stefano Oliverio revisits a central theme of John Dewey's "Experience and Education" and shows its continuing relevance by contextualizing it within a momentous issue in education today. More specifically, he attempts to proceed along the path of Dewey's engagement with progressive education by marshalling some of Dewey's…

Gaudelli, William; Laverty, Megan J. – Education and Culture, 2015
The perceived importance of a global experience in higher education is hard to underestimate. University presidents are known to boast of their "percentage," or the proportion of undergraduates who study abroad. At least part of the rationale is a cosmopolitan one: an essential part of being acknowledged as educated derives in part from…

Stitzlein, Sarah M. – Education and Culture, 2014
Today's social and political context is filled with environmental elements that both support and work against deep, participatory democracy. I argue that certain democratic habits should be nurtured through a supportive formative culture, especially in schools, in order to best achieve good democratic life in the present context. My aim here…

Waks, Leonard J. – Education and Culture, 2014
In his books "Public Opinion" and "The Phantom Public," Walter Lippmann argued that policy leaders should deny the public a significant role in policymaking. Public opinion, he argued, would inevitably be ill-informed, self-interested and readily manipulated. In "The Public and its Problems," Dewey countered Lippmann…

Stark, Jody L. – Education and Culture, 2014
In its broadest sense, pragmatism could be said to be the philosophical orientation of all action research. Action research is characterized by research, action, and participation grounded in democratic principles and guided by the aim of social improvement. Furthermore, action research is an active process of inquiry that does not admit…

Oliverio, Stefano – Education and Culture, 2014
The paper tackles the fundamental question of whether democracy has by now been turned into a meaningless liturgy of a past religion and proposes a Deweyan answer which points to the need to fully realize modernity in order to bring into existence a genuine democracy. By deploying an archaeological reading of "The Public and Its…

Labaree, David F. – Education and Culture, 2014
In this 2013 John Dewey Society Lecture I examine the history and the structure of the American system of higher education. I argue that the true hero of the story is the evolved "form" of the American university and that all the things we love about it, like free speech, are the side effects of a structure that arose for other purposes.…

Cavanaugh, Shane – Education and Culture, 2014
Feelings of awe, wonder, and appreciation have been largely ignored in the working lives of scientists and, in turn, science education has not accurately portrayed science to students. In an effort to bring the affective qualities of science into the classroom, this work draws on the writings of the sublime by Burke, Kant, Emerson, and Wordsworth…

Heybach, Jessica A.; Sheffield, Eric C. – Education and Culture, 2014
In this article, we first suggest that contemporary school policies and practices represent a utopia-gone-wrong. In striving for an unattainable educational utopia--that is, all students will be proficient in math and reading by 2014--current polices and their resulting practices have brought a classic dystopian turn--the dehumanization of…

Vannatta, Seth C. – Education and Culture, 2014
The proper goal of an introductory logic course, teaching critical thinking, is best achieved by maintaining the principle of continuity between student experiences and the curriculum. To demonstrate this I explain Dewey's naturalistic approach to logic and the process of inquiry, one which presents the elements of traditional logic in the…

Misco, Thomas – Education and Culture, 2014
This paper focuses on the primary problem of the public, as advanced in "The Public and its Problems," which Dewey described as the need to improve "methods of debate, discussion, and persuasion" for the purposes of "perfecting the process of inquiry" (Dewey, 1927/1954, p. 208). I first situate these modes of…

Shuffelton, Amy B. – Education and Culture, 2014
This article considers the 2012 Chicago Teachers Strike in light of John Dewey's "The Public and Its Problems." It engages Dewey's conceptualization of practical reason to challenge the educational reform movement's commitment to technocratic decision-making.

Celik, Rasit – Education and Culture, 2014
Creating a democratic nation-state and sustaining its progress was seen by the founders of the Republic of Turkey as necessary to achieving the goal of becoming a distinguished member among developed civilizations. The founders conceived of education as a main instrument in disseminating this new ideology and ensuring the emergence of a culture of…
